Leapwork (credit image/Pixabay/Gerd Altmann)Leapwork, the visual, AI-powered test automation platform, has entered a partnership with Microsoft. The partnership aims to drive innovation and achieve continuous quality across Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform. Microsoft customers and channel partners can utilise Leapwork’s solution to manage monthly software updates seamlessly. They can automate business processes across any application or technology.

The company was founded in 2015 in Copenhagan by Christian Brink Frederiksen and Claus Topholt. According to Brink Frederiksen CEO at Leapwork, “We wanted to disrupt the test automation industry and have a new approach to automation. This entails revolutionising how businesses test software.

Leapwork’s solution automates the testing for most of today’s modern technical stack. Its low code basis democratises the testing process and enables business users with no coding knowledge to organise automated testing.

Leapwork says its technology is robust to automate applications both inside and outside the Dynamics 365 platform and Power Platform. The company says its AI-powered, visual, codeless system makes it easy for non-technical, everyday business users to build and maintain test automation at scale. With Leapwork, Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform, customers and partners can achieve continuous, end-to-end testing across applications. This is expected to minimise the risk of disruptions during software updates and support the delivery of quality at speed.

We are proud to partner with Microsoft. We plan to help Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform customers and partners to remain competitive in today’s market. This will be achieved by keeping up with the speed of software delivery while safeguarding business continuity. Together, we will support customers by empowering them to manage monthly updates with confidence, without sacrificing quality.

“Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform are by partnering with Microsoft cornerstone technologies across business-critical functions. Constant testing is paramount in many cases to keep the business running. Leapwork can truly support businesses to embrace test automation. Minimise repetitive work and hit their goals while reducing the risk of errors,” said Brink Frederiksen.

Leapwork’s test automation platform is built for the frequency of change in a digitized economy, with a ramp-up time of less than 30 days. It integrates into existing CI/CD pipelines and can be used to automate processes end-to-end across the Dynamics 365 platform, as well as applications like Salesforce, SAP and Oracle.

Mike Ehrenberg, Technical Fellow at Microsoft and CTO of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Applications Group, said, “We know that we can drive service quality by proactively pushing essential updates to our services. We know customers need to validate changes to these mission critical services in a sandbox environment before deployment to production. Speed and cost make automated regression testing tools necessary for that validation. Some of our customers have successful test automation processes with other tools, including our own. However, Leapwork’s no-code experience for test creation enables a broader percentage of our customers to effectively implement automated testing. Enhancing the quality of their Microsoft Dynamics 365 service experience and lowering the total cost of ownership through Leapwork is a win-win opportunity.”

Enterprise Times: What this means for business

Testing and QA is perhaps one of the most arduous, time-consuming and vital process in the development cycle. Some analysts have estimated that two-thirds of software development companies conduct the tests in a ratio of 75:25 (manual:automation). Only 9% of survey respondents do only manual testing and only 5% of companies carry out fully automated testing. As a result, defects and issues get missed, which often come back to impact the performance of applications. Hence the constant flow of updates, releases and patches issued by software companies to maintain their products and solutions.

Leapwork’s low code platform, with its no technical knowledge approach to automated testing, looks interesting. It should enable customers and partners to maintain quality and business continuity across Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform. Hence the partnership with Microsoft. The company already has a relationship with Salesforce. So, it will be interesting to see which other software companies make the journey to Leapwork’s front door.
